Men’s Summer Fashion: 5 Outfit Ideas

With your summer plans fast approaching, reinvent your style this season with lightweight fabrics and a splash of colour. Discover our recommendations for men's summer fashion.

The days have gotten longer, and the skies look much bluer than a few months ago. It’s time to refresh your wardrobe with something a little comfier for the warmer months ahead. Read on to discover our recommendations for mens summer fashion.

Inject some colour with pastel shades

Although black, white, and navy can be worn all year round, it’s time to introduce some colour into your wardrobe – and pastel tones are a great place to start! The beauty of these lighter shades is that they can almost always substitute any white t-shirt with little-to-no effort. 
Introduce pops of colour to your wardrobe with linen t-shirts in pastel blue, peach, or pale green to keep you looking fresh and comfortable all day. Pair with your favourite jeans and a jumper for a pared-down style or pull on a pair of Sydney linen trousers in pale blue for the ultimate pastel look.

Relax in comfort with linen shirts

Whether you’re hosting dinner in your garden or flying to a tropical paradise, linen shirts are the ideal way to feel and look ultra cool in warm weather. 

Not only do our luxurious linen shirts look great on their own when worn with your favourite shorts or trousers, they can also be layered up to chase away an evening chill. Linen is a breathable fabric that feels soft against your skin and wicks away moisture to keep you feeling fresh and cool all day – easy to wear from the beach to the bar.

Linen trousers and shorts

Clear skies and hot weather calls for one thing – it’s BBQ season! Whether you’re flipping burgers or are in charge of the cocktails, pull on a pair of our breezy, easy-to-wear linen shorts made from the finest linen and designed for unmatched comfort and style. 

Linen trousers and shorts are the ideal options for this time of year because they’re light and airy and perfect warm weather entertaining.

Smart and casual style with polo shirts

For moments that call for a more informal style (but you still want to feel smart), smart casual is the ideal look and our polo shirts are the perfect blend of smart and casual. 

Pair one of our polo shirts with your favourite pair of jeans or chinos. Short sleeved polo shirts are ideal to wear with a jumper or, for cooler days, opt for one with long sleeves to chase away the chill. For life on deck, or just at the beach, our polo shirts are made with the finest cotton in the world and also work really well with shorts, such as a pair of our crisp linen shorts.

Don’t forget the pyjamas

Pack up your wool and brushed cotton dressing gowns, it’s time to bring in more lightweight silk dressing gowns. Silk feels luxuriously soft on your skin and helps to regulate your body temperature, keeping you cool and comfortable as the temperatures rise.

Switching up your pyjama’s is also a great way to keep it cool and comfortable in the bedroom. So trade in the long sleeves and trousers for shorts instead. Jersey pyjamas in our ultra soft modal stretch fabric are the ultimate spring sleepwear – the buttery soft fabric is the kind you can’t wait to put on (and won’t ever want to take off).

Whether you’re looking forward to long summer evenings sipping vino at home or planning to travel to paradise, summertime style and comfort is in arm's reach with Derek Rose. Every piece from our resortwear range has been designed with your comfort in mind to take you from the beach to dinner effortlessly.
